The 19th congressional district of New York will hold an election for the U.S. House of Representatives on November 6, 2012.
This is the 19th congressional district prior to the 2011 redistricting.

Candidates wishing to run were required to file by the signature filing deadline April 16, 2012. On January 27, 2012, Judge Gary Sharpe moved the primary date from September 11, 2012 to June 26, 2012 in order to allow for sufficient time to send absentee ballots to military voters.[1]

Heading into the election the incumbent is Nan Hayworth (R), who was first elected to the House in 2010. Due to redistricting, Hayworth is running in the redrawn 18th district, and 20th district incumbent Chris Gibson is running in the new 19th.
